Michy Batshuayi is unlikely to feature for Borussia Dortmund again this season, and faces a race against time to be fit for Belgium's World Cup campaign.

The 24-year-old was stretchered off during BVB's 2-0 derby defeat to Schalke on Sunday afternoon, with Yevhen Konoplyanka and Naldo putting the hosts ahead before former Tottenham midfielder Benjamin Stambouli's challenge on the Chelsea loanee during injury time. There are even suggestions that it could be a broken ankle, which would most definitely rule Michy out for the rest of the season as well as the World Cup this summer.

On its website, Dortmund said: "There remains a chance that he could still feature for the Belgian national team at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer", while confirming that their forward was likely to be out for the rest of the season.

Manchester United continue to infuriate - Mourinho must raise standards
The United manager remains confident in his own ability but said his side must replicate City's consistency next season. Following a promising start to the season, United looked as though they were going to challenge for top spot.

Manager Peter Stoger said: "I didn't think it looked like the kind of injury that he would be back from quickly".

Batshuayi has scored nine times in 14 games since joining Dortmund on loan in the winter transfer window in a deal that runs out at the end of this campaign. I hope, of course, that I'm mistaken.

But Belgium worldwide Batshuayi faces a battle to recover from injury in time for the World Cup after suffering the injury in a heavy challenge from Benjamin Stambouli.
